Pay panel term extended, new scales after February

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, January 1

The Punjab Government has extended the term of the Sixth Pay Commission for its employees and pensioners by another two months. This means the employees will have to wait for the new pay scales till end of February.

The pay commission, headed by former Chief Secretary Jai Singh Gill, was supposed to give its recommendations by December-end.

After an assurance to this effect was given by state Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal, it was believed the new pay scales for employees would come into effect from January.

However, citing that the report was not yet ready, the commission had sought an extension, following which the government granted it a two-month extension.

This, however, has angered the employees, who have alleged the government was deliberately trying to delay the implementation of the new pay commission.
